My Ratings

All my ratings start out at 5 stars and go down from there.  Every book deserves to start out at the top.  I find it difficult pinpointing how I feel about a book with just 1-5 Stars or even half stars for that matter.  I rate on a point system.  The number I come up with takes all of the aspects of the book into consideration.  I then come up with my OVERALL RATING from my breakdown of ratings.  I grade on these aspects: 

Plot
Main Characters
Secondary Characters
The Feels
Addictiveness
Theme or Tone
Flow (Writing Style)
Backdrop (World Building)
Originality
Book Cover
Narration
Ending

Not all of these aspects have as much persuasion as some of the others...for example, the book cover rating doesn't really play into my final rating at all. Also, originality doesn't get as much consideration as plot, characters or flow does.

As an added feature, I also give a letter grade rating for anyone who prefers that type of rating.  Somedays I prefer the Letter Rating myself.

This is my chart for ratings:

5STARS - GRADE=A+
